Should both electric cooling fans on a 94 Camry come on when the car is idiling?

It is possible that both cooling fans coming on when the car is idling is normal. The fans are supposed to come on in response to the heat of the engine. So, if the car was idling for a long time, both fans may kick on and there are other conditions which would explain it as well. If it seems that the car is overheating however, you should have it checked out.
